Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incidentby Eoin Colfer
Synopses & Reviews
Since the release of Artemis Fowl in 2001, Eoin Colfer's blockbuster series has sold more than eight million copies in the United States alone. Now, in this second graphic novel installment of the series, fans can follow along as the world's youngest criminal mastermind rushes to save a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya: his own father.
Eoin Colfer has once again teamed up with acclaimed comic writer Andrew Donkin to adapt the text for this action-packed, brilliantly illustrated adventure in the Artemis Fowl series.
"Colfer has produced new gadgets and new baddies and taken the emotional side of the story much further than before. The characters are more real, they show more feelings, but still retain that fantastical quality that makes these stories classics of our time. What an outstanding sequel..." Mrs. Mad, Mrs. Mad's Book-a-Rama (www.mrsmad.com)
"Once again, the roller coaster of a plot introduces a host of high jinks and high-tech weaponry as Colfer blends derring-do with snappy prose...and repartee....[T]he high-concept premise may be a tad slick for [some], but Colfer's finger is firmly on the pulse of his target market, and...he delivers a cracking good read." Publishers Weekly
